My website would not have been possible without the help of many, many
people I have met and communicated with since I became ill. They number
in the absolute hundreds, so it is not possible to list them all here,
so please forgive me if I have forgotten someone. I wish to thank the
many chiropractors, doctors, dentists and other physicians who have shared
with me their thoughts and expertise. I want to also say thanks to all
of the patients who have shared with me their health problems and personal
predicaments. We are fellow sufferers who have seen the light and experienced
the wonderful medical approach, which is known as 'specific' upper cervical
chiropractic. I know that you will all attest to the significant health
benefits that derive from being treated by these 'specialist' chiropractors.
Thank you for making my journey back to health so rewarding and allowing
me to help so many sick people. My greatest reward has been to witness
so many children regain their health, many after years of suffering.
It's a pity that more children have not been introduced to this wonderful
art. The World would be a better place if they had been, for as Danny
Kaye once said 'The greatest natural resource that any country can have
is its children'.
A thankyou would not be complete without thanking those people who started
the chiropractic science, namely D.D. and B.J. Palmer. If it wasn't
for the Harvey Lilliard adjustment would chiropractic have even existed?
In any event, the work carried on by B.J. in the upper cervical area
has been nothing short of revolutionary. I continue to study the Green
Books and can't help but be both thankful and disappointed. Thankful
that he pursued his work with much dedication and disappointed that
much of chiropractic seems to have deviated from his work. This being
that subluxations only exist in the upper cervical spine (atlas and
axis) and that problems in this region are the source of illness. This
concept is not foreign to people who have sustained an upper cervical
subluxation. When you are inside of a body, which is behaving the way
it does, when this subluxation is present and then an upper cervical
correction is delivered, there is no other explanation for the rapid
health changes. Imagine today, if you will, that we had an upper cervical
chiropractor wherever there was a medical doctor. I think the World
would be a far better place. One can only pray that commonsense prevails
and upper cervical chiropractic and medical science stand side by side
for the benefit of patients. For isn't this what health care is all
about? Sometimes I wonder.
Upper Cervical Chiropractors and John Grostic
Thank you to Dr. John Grostic for his pioneering work also. So much of
upper cervical today is based on his work. We need more people like
him to follow on in his footsteps. Thank you to all 'specific' upper
cervical chiropractors for taking up the challenge. Without you we
are nothing and the World is a sorry place. Don't give up, fight for
your profession. We patients need you!
Even though my site is dedicated to "specific" upper cervical
work, I think it is very important to thank the other chiropractors pursuing
the treatment of sufferers. There are many great stories and cases emanating
from your practices. I think that if you include 'specific' upper cervical
in your armoury you will soon realise its powerful benefits to your patients.
Dr. Joe Ierano, Atlas Orthogonist
To Dr. Joe as he is affectionately known by his patients and assistant of many years Lyn Stewart I say thank you for the years of friendship and guidance you have given me. Thank you for looking after my family. A visit to your practice is such a wonderful experience because besides being professionals you are also just plain nice people. We all are better people for having met you and my children continue to enjoy the health benefits your wonderful art and science provides.
Dr. Michael Burcon, Blair Chiropractor
To Dr. Mike and Jane thank you for being our friends.
Mike, you have educated me well in the Blair approach to chiropractic.
We have had some great discussions relating to the intricacies of the
upper cervical spine and imaging. You are doing a wonderful job in your
practices in Michigan and there are many people who have their lives
back again thanks to you. It was a pleasure to have you stay at my house
down under. I think the local pub is looking forward to your return!
Just joking! Keep up the great work.
Dr. Darryl Roundy, Atlas Orthogonist
To Dr. Darryl, for your support and professional expertise.
You are so dedicated to the task at hand and this shows in the results
you are achieving. Thank you for your friendship and for helping me out
of many occasions. I have visited Seattle many times prior to my injury.
Had I only known about upper cervical chiropractic and that you were
Dr. Daniel O. Clark
To Dr. Dan, for your absolutely wonderful artwork and
your mission to educate patients from a layman’s perspective. I
know you want to keep it simple and I hope that my website has achieved
at least some level of simplicity. Head and neck alignment, as communicated
by you is all-important. Let’s hope that some day many more people
will understand this and work for the benefit of the patient and not
their own interests.
Dr. Roy Sweat and Dr. Matthew Sweat
To Dr. Roy and Dr. Matt, I don’t know how I can
thank you enough for creating such a wonderful and absolutely significant
upper cervical approach to correcting subluxations. It is just nothing
short of miraculous that such a painless procedure has such amazing health
benefits. I look forward to the next evolution of the Atlas Orthogonal
Dr. Roger Hinson
To Dr. Roger, thank you for providing me with so much
material and moral support for what I am doing. Also keep up the great
research you are doing. I know that some people in Australia are about
to benefit from your work on trigeminal neuralgia. We need more people
Dr. Robert Goodman, NUCCA
To Dr. Robert, thank you for allowing me to use some
of your NUCCA material for my site. The NUCCA approach is another gentle
upper cervical technique that deserves much recognition. Thanks for your
support within the NUCCA organization and for helping me get the message
Dr. E.A. Addington and Mrs. Blair
To Dr. Addington and Mrs. Blair, I say thank you for
providing with so much of Dr. Blair’s material. His approach in
my view makes complete sense. I have read his papers over and over and
come to the conclusion that there are strong reasons to include his work
in any upper cervical analysis. He has left a wonderful legacy to the
World and should be recognized as one of the pioneers of chiropractic.
Dr. Kirk Eriksen, Orthospinologist
To Dr. Kirk, thank you for allowing me to use some of your material for
my site. I notice that you have presented many cases on upper cervical
and continue to foster and develop this science. Without the dedication
of people like you many people would be banished to a life of misery.
Dr. Kale, Kale Brainstem approach
To Dr. B.J., thank you also for providing me
with materials on the Kale approach. Your father’s work should
be commended and recognized throughout the profession.
Dr. Cecil Laney
To Dr. Laney, the information you have provided me
is fantastic. What a great instrument you have created. The need for
incorporating torque into an adjustment I know has been hotly debated,
however it seems to me that your conclusions make a great deal of sense
and any research into upper cervical should include analysis and use
of instruments such as yours. Thank you for passing on your knowledge
Dr. William Amalu - DC, DABCT,
DIACT, FIACT - Vice President and Research Director – IUCCA
Thank you Dr. Amalu for providing me with information about the Applied
Upper Cervical Biomechanics approach from IUCCA, and for allowing me
to display IUCCA research material on my site. It was a pleasure to discuss
upper cervical chiropractic over the telephone with you as well as over
email, and I look forward to a long relationship with you and the International
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association [IUCCA].
Dr. Robert Cowin and Dr. Kathleen Bras
Thank you to Robert and Kathleen for being supportive of my endeavours
over the years and for introducing me to the upper cervical orthogonal
chiropractic technique you employ. It is unique in Australia, if not
in the World and I feel honoured to have been able to dedicate a web
page to this approach. Thank you also for providing me with your patient
testimonial newsletters and allowing me to display them on this site.
Dr. Craig Wehrenberg and Dr. Tracey Mulhall-Wehrenberg,
To Dr. Craig and Dr. Tracey, what marvellous work you
are carrying out in the area of SIDS research. For you and others who
think the same way it is no surprise that problems in the upper cervical
spine may be a major contributing factor if not THE main factor in SIDS.
The symptoms caused by upper cervical subluxations are distressing enough
for the adult body, let alone for children. My view is that much of the
research funds raised for SIDS research needs to be directed towards
your work. I have no doubt you will succeed.
Britta Hansen – Fresh Consulting
Thankyou to Britta for providing the professional expertise
to design my website. Thanks for being patient
with me as I made countless changes to material and took my time on some
other occasions. Britta and her team are some of the most accommodating
and professional people I have come to meet. Their work is exemplary.
Francesca and Richard Pascoe – Cyber Interchange
To Francesca and Richard for your great graphic design
and database work. I recommend your work to anyone wanting to establish
a presence on the Internet. You are great people with wonderful skills.
